“Amazing Corcovado hike”
Reviewed 22 December 2013

My husband and I spent 3 days in Corcovado hiking to La Sirena station. It was absolutely amazing. The place itself is beautiful, the hike is fun, but excellent guides make the experience unforgettable. We are so impressed by their knowledge, skill, and personalities. They really care about hikers and work as a team. You feel their care and enthusiasm for the nature all the time. Their love for the nature is contagious! Over the three days we saw so much, learned a lot, and enjoyed the physical challenge of a long walk. The park is gorgeous, but hiking with our excellent guides made the journey unforgettable. We are really happy we met these people. Also in our opinion the company is well managed. When I tried planning the trip, they were the best providing timely and accurate information, and honest advice. You can trust that they will work hard taking care of their group.

“Awesome experience”
Reviewed 19 December 2013

We did a three day trip through the Corcovado National Park. It was probably the most beautiful trip I have ever done. The park is just breathtaking. Our guide Ulises was very nice and had a good knowledge about the wildlife. We saw a lot of animals and were even lucky enough to see an Ozelot and a Tapir!
"Surcos tours" organized everything we needed and gave us a lot of information beforehand. The lady I email with was extremely nice and helpful.

“3-days Hike with Super-Nito”
Reviewed 16 December 2013


We experienced a super 3-days hike with Nito at the end of Nov. 2013. We did the Carate-La Sirena-Carate trip. This was at the end of our honey moon in Costa Rica and this was the best part of it.

Corcovado is one of the wildest and most beautiful region of CR. It was amazing to see so much wildlife thanks to our guide. We had a lot of chance with the weather (sunny while in the forest and cloudy/rainy on the beach). We saw so many animals (monkeys of all kinds, boas, coatis, ants, dancing caterpilars, tapir, sharks, birds, bats and more, ...).
While the hike is not so easy, it's also very doable for anyone in good physical shape.
Estella as our contact person was very helpful to set up the reservations. By mail and by phone.
Nito is an excellent guide. He can do three of those hikes in a row!!! He came the day before our hike to help us prepare for the hike in Puerto Jimenez. We made the groceries together for the food. He is joyfull and very good at spotting wildlife. He is also a bit of a prankster (he'll make you live THE adventure) with beehives shaking, river crossing and lezard bites ;).
This trip is really worth it !!!
Just the website could be updated.

Thanks Nito.

“Best Corcovado experience!”
Reviewed 14 December 2013

We had a one day trip to Corcovado in November together with our guide Nito. It was the best jungle experience we had in Costa Rica. We learned so much from Nito and his knowledge about the jungle is ridiculously big!!! We want to come back and spent more time in Corcovado and would only do our tours together with Surcos Tours.
Thank you for showing us.

“Corcovado 3 day trek”
Reviewed 1 December 2013 via mobile

We spent 3 days with our guide Nito in the Corcovado at the start of November, we had the most amazing time - everything about the experience was brilliant, and far exceeded our already high expectations.

Nito was great company, incredibly professional with a huge amount of knowledge - his ability to spot widlife was astounding, even spotting a puma through dense rainforest!

It was an intense experience but the national park feels completely unspoilt and relatively undiscovered as numbers are restricted.

If you're interested in wildlife and the natural world and happy to go off the beaten track, this is a must! We felt it was good value for money and we felt very privileged to have the chance to do it.

Thanks Nito!
